The White Tiger's scene stealer Adarsh Gourav is going places.

He has flown to New York to shoot for Apple TV+'s new series on global warming and on the effects of climate changes on individuals.

Extrapolations stars Gourav alongside such heavyweights like Meryl Streep, Sienna Miller (The Loudest Voice), Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones), Tahar Rahim (The Serpent, The Mauritanian), Matthew Rhys (The Americans, Perry Mason), Daveed Diggs (Blackish, Snowpiercer), Gemma Chan (Captain Marvel) and David Schwimmer (F.R.I.E.N.D.S.).

Gourav plays the lead in one of the episodes.

He is cast again as a chauffeur, the role that fetched him international renown in The White Tiger.


"I always harboured a deep desire to work not just in Hindi cinema but also Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and international cinema," Gourav tells Subhash K Jha.

"That The White Tiger came to me was providential, but I never harboured any desire to be a star. I grew up influenced by actors who were not necessarily stars like Irrfan Khan, Naseeruddin Shah, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Om Puri... at some point, I liked Aamir Khan."

"More than stardom, it was the idea of being in relevant cinema that appeals to me."

Gourav has also been cast by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani in a romcom called Kho Gaye Hum Kahan.
